Quick Start Instructions on using MyMathLab with JAWS 12 and JAWS 13

To work on assignments in MyMathLab with JAWS, follow these steps:

1. Open JAWS if it is not already running. It is important that JAWS is running prior to doing work so that JAWS can recognize the MyMathLab player.

2. Login to your MyMathLab account, and open the MyMathLab player. You can do this by opening a question in any assignment (homework, test, quiz).

3. Open the context menu from the MyMathLab player. You can do this by using JAWS shortcuts. First use the Insert and number pad minus keys, and then the number pad star key. If you are helping a student and you are using a mouse, you can open the context menu via the right mouse button click.

4. Select "Accessibility" from the context menu.

5. In the popup window, select the "Automatically detect," radio button and click OK.

You can use JAWS to enter answers to the following types of questions:

• Multiple-choice — you choose the correct answer or answers from several possible answers.

• Free-response — you type your answer into a field using command-line language.

You can cut, copy, and paste using keyboard shortcuts; you also can use the command-line language to enter special characters and symbols. (Refer to the section below, "Using Command-Line Language with MyMathLab and JAWS")

Note, with the current version of MyMathLab, the following types of questions are not screen-readable by JAWS:

• Questions that require creating a graph, plotting on a number line, or selected questions with a visual display such as a graph or table.

• Writing questions that require tagging words or phrases in a paragraph or writing an essay.

If you have questions, or require assistance, please email mymathlab@.

Navigation Tips in MyMathLab and JAWS 12 and JAWS 13

You can use the standard JAWS navigation menus and keyboard shortcuts with MyMathLab. There are many different ways to navigate using JAWS. Here are a few examples of how a student could access a test and homework assignment using JAWS.

Doing Homework in MyMathLab using JAWS

1. Open JAWS if it is not already running (It is important that JAWS is running prior to doing work so that JAWS can recognize the MyMathLab player).

2. Select your homework assignment.

3. Select Question 1.

4. Turn on the Automatically Detect for Accessibility from the context menu in the question.

5. Use CTRL+HOME to start reading from the top of the question.

6. Use down arrow to read the question.

7. You can also use O to skip the navigation and heading information at the top of the question.

8. If the question contains a multiple choice then use INSERT+F5 to select the answer from the JAWS forms field list (You can also select your answer by using the up/down keys however we have found that in certain situations the keyboard action behaves inconsistently with JAWS. You can consistently choose your answer from the forms field list).

9. If the question is a free response question and contains an edit field, then once in the edit field enter your answer using the keyboard and command line language.

10. To select the next question, use INSERT+F5 to open the Forms Field list and select the specific question or the Next Question.

11. To Save your homework assignment, use INSERT+F5 to open the Forms Field list and select Save.

Taking a Test in MyMathLab using JAWS

1. Open JAWS if it is not already running (It is important that JAWS is running prior to doing an activity so that JAWS can recognize the MyMathLab player).

2. Select the test you want to take.

3. Select Are you ready to start.

4. Turn on the Automatically Detect for Accessibility from the context menu in the question.

5. Use CTRL+HOME to start reading from the top of the question.

6. Use the down arrow to read the question.

7. You can also use O to skip the navigation and heading information at the top of the question.

8. If the question contains a multiple choice then use INSERT+F5 to select the answer from the JAWS forms field list (You can also select your answer using the up/down keys however we have found that in certain situations the keyboard behaves inconsistently with JAWS. You can consistently choose your answer from the forms field list).

9. If the question is a free response question and contains an edit field, then once in the edit field enter your answer using the keyboard and command line language.

10. To select the next question, use INSERT+F5 to open the Forms Field list and select the specific question or the Next Question.

11. To submit the test, use INSERT+F5 to open the Forms Field list and select Submit.
